what is the yintercept and xintercept for the equation 4x+y=14?
Thank you. I stayed up late, but I still can't figure this out. Please help! Thank you, again.

If you rearrange the equation to the standard form:
y=mx+b
then b is the yintercept.
The xintercept can be found by setting y=0, or
mx+b=0
x=b/m
To illustrate the point,
4x+y=14 can be rewritten as
y=4x+14
So the yintercept is 14, and the xintercept is 14/4=7/2
